According to Vatican sources, Pope Francis "spent a quiet night, smooth as oil", after being admitted to the Gemelli Polyclinic.

The pontiff was taken to the hospital on Wednesday after feeling ill and is now under medical monitoring in the "dei Papi" apartment of the Capitoline hospital for a "respiratory infection" (but Covid-19 would be excluded).

«The nurses are very optimistic, they believe that for the next Palm Sunday celebrations, there will be. Barring unforeseen events of course» , the sources still report.

Next to the Holy Father is his personal nurse Massimiliano Strapppetti, 54 years old.

Francis will remain at the Gemelli at least for the whole day today, with the Holy See having canceled all the commitments on the agenda.
